I have found *very pleasantly* that I can run Aquamacs without "show buffers in new frames" checked, relying on tabs heavily. But, that when a new file is opened from the finder, a new frame is opened. This behavior is quite nice and very functional. 

There has been change to the latter part of this; please check out a recent nightly build and let us know if this causes any problems.

> One oddity is that when a frame in the current Space is closed, and there are no other aquamacs frames opened in the current Space, aquamacs switches to a different frame.  Most applications (e.g., Firefox, Terminal) will switch to a different window only if one is available in the current Space; otherwise will revert to a state of not having a current window be the focus.  Is there a way to tweak Aquamacs so that when a frame is closed, it does not switch to another frame if the only other frames available are in other Spaces?

By design, Emacs expects there to be a exactly one selected frame to receive input, no matter what.  That's why this is problematic.
